Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 85 / Tuesday, May 4, 2010 / Notices with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department extended the due date for issuing the preliminary results by 92 days, from the original date of January 31, 2010, to May 3, 2010. As explained in the February 12, 2010, memorandum from the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll Import Administration deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from February 5 through February 12, 2010. Thus, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by seven days. The revised deadline for the preliminary results of this review is currently May 10, 2010. See Memorandum to the Record from Ronald Lorentzen, DAS for Import Administration, regarding ‘‘Tolling of Administrative Deadlines As a Result of the Government Closure During the Recent Snowstorm,’’ dated February 12, 2010. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act requires the Department to make a preliminary determination within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published in the Federal Register. If it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month. We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review by the current deadline of May 10, 2010, because before issuing the preliminary results of review we intend to verify the sales of a respondent to this review. Also, we have granted several extensions requested by the respondent to respond to our requests for information in this administrative review and, as a result, need additional time to analyze the respondent’s submissions. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this review by 28 days from May 10, 2010, to June 7, 2010.

    As explained in the February 12, 2010, memorandum from the Deputy 
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the Department has 
exercised its discretion to toll Import Administration deadlines for 
the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from February 5 
through February 12, 2010. Thus, the deadline in this segment of the 
proceeding has been extended by seven days. This revised deadline for 
the preliminary results of this administrative review is now May 10,

determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the
